Hey, if you haven’t noticed it, it’s because Oracle’s marketing machine apparently hasn’t gotten up to steam yet. But the 12c database is available for download. For Linux x86-64, Solaris Sparc64 and Solaris (x86-64) that is. Also you can now read or download the documentation.
I already have heard some things about 12c and pluggable databases last Planboard symposium, and it sounds like 12c is a major overhaul. I’ll have to read into it first.
